[New-bugs-announce] [issue4905] Use INVALID_FILE_ATTRIBUTES instead of magic numbers
report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Ulrich Eckhardt <eckhardt at satorlaser.com>:
GetFileAttributes[W|A] returns a DWORD with this value when it
couldn't determine the file's attributes. In the Python codebase,
there are basically three values this is compared with, the above
macro, 0xffffffff and (DWORD)-1, it should only be the macro.
However, this macro isn't defined in some SDKs (I don't remember if
those were early MSVC versions or some MS Windows CE SDKs), so we also
need to work around that.
I'm currently preparing a patch that resolves those including the
workaround when the macro isn't defined.
